Very pretty, looks Ghaznavid but I'll have to work on it.

Best wishes

Thanks Alan - Inspired I've spent an hour or so looking on Zeno for this (so far)
It seems to be a better match for some of the later types but more than this I'm stuck.

I'm afraid I'm stuck too: I've looked at Zeno of course, and been through Volume XIVd of the Tubingen Sylloge (which has about 20 large folio plates of them) but with no luck so far, but I will keep looking.

Serendipity not skill I'm afraid: I was looking for something else totally different in Tye's Jitals book and found it.

Ghorids of Bamiyan, Tukharistan and Badakshan, [Sam bin Muhammad Shams al-Din (from Bosworth)] Baha al-Din (1192-1206 AD), jital, uncertain mint, Tye 154.

You were not the only one, andyg. Pretty brilliant, Manzikert!
